Can we get a shortcut for "change to uppercase" please?

In screenwriting, it’s common to capitalize words for emphasis. But this is often done on a later draft. So you may have hundreds of words to change. The dropdown menu doesn’t help, because it’s just easier to retype the word. A shortcut would be great!

I use PopClip for this and many more very useful things … Available right now without waiting for anything from L&L now at and in Apple App store.

As you’re on a Mac, you can do it yourself:

  1. Open System Settings/Preferences and choose Keyboard, then Keyboard Shortcuts;
  2. In the pane that comes up, choose App Shortcuts;
  3. Click the + button
  4. In the dialog that appears, click the dropdown symbol by All Applications and choose;
  5. For “Menu title” type Make Uppercase just like that—the capitalisation is important;
  6. Give it a shortcut like Control-Opt-U (Combinations using ‘control’ are good as generally they aren’t assigned) and click “Done”.

It will take effect immediately.



Why didn’t I think of that? Beautiful! Thank you.
